Review: Organic Cotton Bedding by Gaiam
The Organic Cotton Percale Bedding from Gaiam takes a few washes to soften up, but then settles into being a wonderfully comfortable set of sheets.

For the past few years I've been slowly but surely greening up my living space- when I need to buy something I first look to the world of greener goods to find a more environmentally friendly option. I already have all the obvious bases covered with bio-safe cleaning solutions and recycled paper products but I've also been working to green up things like my transportation (electric bikes
for the win
) and shoes (so many
cool greener shoes
So when I noticed that it was probably a good time to get a new set of sheets, I got in touch with the folks over at Gaiam
and asked if I could review a pair of their organic cotton sheets.
The sheets and pillowcases felt stiff after the first couple of washes but loosened up after each washing. I've had them for a few months now and they've turned into a soft and comfortable set of bedding. One of life's great pleasures is slipping into bed after putting on a fresh set of sheets and pillowcases and the Gaiam organic percale bedding set does not disappoint on this end.
The pillowcases costs $28 for a set of two, the sheets costs $99 for twin, $109 for double, $119 for queen, and $149 for king. Both color choices use "low eco-impact dyes" in addition to organic cotton.
Full Disclosure: I received the sheets from Gaiam for free to review.
